I also have a 2 man flip-over shack and was tired of lugging it through deep snow. I checked out one man shacks for several months before choosing the SCOUT. when choosing a one man shack, keep three things in mind. Mobility,mobility,and thats right, mobility! If you have to fumble around with telescopic frames and support poles every time you want to move or hole hop, you will find yourself sitting over a fishless hole for hours after getting sick and tired of the process. In that case you may as well use a 2 man shack and enjoy the extra space.Otherwise you have 3 options , the scout,frabill recon, or frabill commando. The recon is the lightest but also the smallest. The biggest drawback about the recon, for me anyway, was the lack of a door. "Sometimes", I am lucky enough to stumble on school of crappie and want to camp out for a few hours. Then it is to be able to go outside and kick snow all around the shack to keep in the heat. Now I had to decide between the scout and the commando. The commando has a very comfy seat and is longer but heavier. AS someone else stated, it is the same width as the scout making the extra space and longer sled just dead weight. Like I said before, the main purpose of a one man shack is to be as mobile as possible. some great lakes don't allow vehicles on them! Anyway I chose the scout and love it. I am 6' tall and weigh 180# and have plenty of room to jig one hole with my vex and a lantern for heat. Two holes is possible but alittle tight. I have no problem fitting my gear in sled. The best part is that when I get back to my truck, I simply put the cover on, gear and all, and I can still easily pick it up and slide it in my truck or my buddies hatch back car. Anyway, I don't want to offend anyone. This is just my opinion based on my experiece. I hope this helps and good luck.
